    Access POPup forms - setting position

    (Access 2007) how do I set the screen position of an access popup form. When they open they seem to be either set to centre or appear top left. I need them middle right of screen.

    Have you tried setting the Auto Center property of the form to Yes?

    Hi - yes - but I don't want it in the centre - I need it on the right hand side of the screen as it is overlapping/hiding other items. There is a way of setting the coordinates of the top left corner - but I've forgotten how to do it.

    Ah, I misread your post. Check out the MoveSize method.
